Ghost in the Rain

1989 Words by Terry Taylor, Music by Gene Eugene
Recorded by Riki Michele for her album "Big Big Town" (1989)
I would keep the vision, speak of things to come
But the liquid, dreamy river is now a desert in the sun
A well of prayers gone dry
A tear in no one's eye

I would speak like angels and young men would dream dreams
But the skies are ashen and sober, there's no angel on the wing
I'll fill the sky with sorrow
Dark clouds again

(Chorus):
Ghost in the rain
Gently falling
Are You calling? Whispering my name?
Ghost in the rain
Sweet latter rain, come kiss me now
And I will drink You in
And You will haunt my still and empty heart again

I would be a watchman 'til all the danger's passsed
But my heavy eyes were falling and I was sinking fast
Now the time of sleep is over
Awake at last

(Repeat chorus)

Ghost in the rain, gently falling
Ghost in the rain, are You calling?
Ghost in the rain, whispering my name
Ghost in the rain, Ghost in the rain
Sweet latter rain, come kiss me now
And I will drink You in
And you will haunt my still and longing heart
